notes:

  • firstly, do not grate the apple and rest for a long time as it turns brown.
  • also, skip adding saffron colour and still get bright colour by caramelising sugar.
  • additionally, for a smooth halwa texture, blend the apples to smooth paste.
  • finally, apple halwa recipe can be made richer by adding khova.
